Chalk has more than 25 years' experience as a capital markets advisor in the global metals and mining industry, the explorer noted.

"We extend a warm welcome to Marcus as he joins our already strong Board,” Brandon Macdonald, Fireweed's CEO said in a statement. "His experience with large-scale mining transactions and strong relationships at all levels within the industry will undoubtedly prove valuable as attention increases on our impressive Macmillan Pass project."

Last week, Fireweed revealed it was ramping up exploration work at its flagship 544 square kilometer (sq km) asset.

The company said the first core drill will arrive on-site next week, with a second drill to arrive shortly after. Most drilling will be at Boundary Zone where there will be further testing of the wide, high-grade mineralization hit last year.

New discovery targets will also be drilled, including the 240 Mile Target, while geological mapping, geochemical sampling, and prospecting are underway in the Boundary Zone area and at 240 Mile Target.

Fireweed noted that ground gravity surveying has begun in the Fertile Corridor to the west of previous surveys, including the area around Boundary Zone, while an airborne VTEM-Magnetic geophysical survey over the western Fertile Corridor including the Boundary Zone area is also scheduled to start shortly.
